Thank you for your help building this one. I have been not so much in touch with hardware. I need some advice on parts and potential better alternatives, like GPU, HDD, Monitor or even memory. I would like to get the best performance for this budget. I plan tooverclock the E5200 and buy a better one later.
E5200 - 49,90€
GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R - 107€
Samsung TFT 22" Wide SyncMaster T220 - 179€
OCZ PC Reaper HPC Edition Dual Channel 2 x 2GB 1066 - 54,90
you could also get a 24" for the same price. I can't figure out how to see the specs since I don't know Portuguese, but you won't see the difference between 5ms and 2ms (you can't really see anything under 8ms refresh rate), and HDMI isn't important on a computer monitor.
Thank you. Im am thinking on streching the budget to allow a better GPU. For that resolution 1650x1050 do you recomend 4850 4890 or the 260? Maximum of 160€.
For this GPU´s, is the PSU of 450 sufficient?
One more question, would the memory be good for overclocking since I was planning on buying DDR800.
And for last, would this board be better than ASUS P5Q PRO?
Thank you again, cannot do this without your advise!
Thanks, that's a buttload of information I need to read through. Just for the record, I've got a Westinghouse 24" /w 8ms response time and I couldn't be happier. Looks like you're a bit more informed on the subject though
